Sergeant Dave Knowles has

organised a community meeting

next week to address the concerns

The meeting was organised

last week – after months of concern

by residents and articles in

the Bay Harbour News.

Last week Bay Harbour

complained about the level of


Last month it was revealed

a community survey of about

100 Lyttelton residents found

two-thirds believed the police

response to crime was inadequate.

Sergeant Knowles said he

wanted to be open with the

community, and answer any

questions they had.

He was invited by the Bay

Harbour News to sit down to

discuss the latest crime figures,

but he said he would rather

present them to the whole community

at the meeting.

The meeting will be held at

6pm on March 16 at the Lyttelton

because Bay Harbour News and the

Redcliffs tennis stalwart takes

second award for club work

• By Gordon Findlater

DI FRANCE has received her

second nod in as many months

for her work on reopening the

Redcliffs Tennis Club.

The Redcliffs president was

named administrator of the year

at the Nexia New Zealand Canterbury

Sports Awards at the Air

Force Museum of New Zealand

on Friday night.

“There were nine nominations

for administrators and they had

all done some amazing work so

I find it very humbling,” said


“It’s nice to be recognised,

but for me the reward is seeing

people out playing tennis, particularly

all the kids out there

using the courts – that’s the

main reward.”

In January, she was named

volunteer of the year at Tennis

New Zealand’s annual awards in


Following the February

2011 earthquake, France was

instrumental in helping the club

avoid extinction. She stepped in

as project manager, applying for

community grants and overseeing

the reinstatement of the

damaged courts.

When the club reopened

in May 2013, she was elected

president. Under her leadership,

membership has grown from 40

juniors and 22 seniors to more

than 130 juniors and 35 affiliated

senior members.

This hasn’t been her first stint

in the role. She served as the

club’s president during the early

1980s before becoming inactive

in the sport for more than 20


When rumours of the club’s

potential closure came to light

following the earthquake, she

was prompted into action.

“I think that was one of the

things that seemed to have an

influence, the fact that I hadn’t

played tennis for 22 years. And

I went back because I saw that

there was the need to reestablish

the tennis courts,” said France.

She continues to be the driving

force behind the tennis club.

She established junior tennis

coaching, first by engaging

Stu Chalmers as junior coach

in 2013, then by organising

Evie Ruegg to take on the head

coaching role.

The club is currently holding

its junior championships,

which finish this weekend, and

it will be followed by the senior

champs in early April.

France also established social

senior club tennis on Tuesday

and Friday mornings, which she

herself attends. Along with her

husband, Roger, she under takes

regular maintenance of the

courts, clubhouse and hall.

In Brief


The owner of the British Hotel was

surprised how much its 50-yearold

pool table sold for on Friday.

The table was auctioned off for

more than $4000 to raise money

to help restore the hotel to its

former glory days. Owner Rebecca

Lovell-Smith was “really pleased”

the pool table went to a Lyttelton

resident who saw sentimental

value in the item. “The pool table

got a great price, it will pay a few

outstanding invoices,” she said.


Little River Volunteer Fire Brigade

chief fire officer David Irving

reminds residents that there is a

fire ban in the area and people

need to be wary about potential

fire hazards. He said long grass

around buildings and sheds can be

a concern as people often forget to

tend to it. “People need to be very,

very diligent,” he said.


An American tourist was taken to

hospital with bruises after a headon

crash on Wainui Main Rd on

Sunday morning. Senior Constable

Tim Johnson said the woman

was driving on the wrong side of

the road when she collided with

the car, but was lucky they were

both travelling at a low speed. “If it

had been a 100km/h area, it would

have been a lot worse,” he said.

Former cop more positive after meeting

• By Noah Graham

A FORMER detective who

complained about the Lyttelton

police is now feeling more

positive after a meeting with a

senior Canterbury officer.

Peter Newsome, who lives in

port, met with Acting Inspector

Paul Reeves last week to discuss

an official complaint he made

to the Minister of Police Paula


Mr Newsome laid the

complaint in January after he felt

two of his requests for help were

“fobbed off” by local police.

He was also concerned about

the lack of local police on

duty at the weekends and after


Mr Newsome’s complaint

comes alongside growing

discontent in Lyttelton about the

police coverage there.

Mr Newsome told Bay

Harbour News yesterday that

he was listened to and was told

Lyttelton police will work with

the community going forward.

“I’m happy with it because it

will help address some of the

issues at the Lyttelton police

station and it will start a wider

debate with the community over

what police are doing.”

Mr Newsome’s complaint

comes as two residents, Candice

Milner and Paul Dietche, put

together an online survey of

about 100 residents concerned

about policing. Sixty-six per

cent believed the police response

to crime in the area was

Hope for Sumner skate park

THE BALL is starting to roll for a

new permanent site for a Sumner

skate park.

The skate park was closed down

on Wakefield Ave last month

after it did not pass city council

sound level tests.

But the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board has

now decided to find a permanent

skate park in the area with a full

site selection process and a bid

for funding in the city council’s

Long Term Plan – which governs

spending between 2018-2028.

Sumner Green and Skate

spokeswoman Kimberly Mossman

said she was delighted by

the response from the board and

thought it was “absolutely brilliant”.


United Travel

However, Mrs Mossman said

the group really hoped for a good

partnership with city council and

although they need to find a skate

park site, she hoped they would

provide what the community

really wants – a combined green

and skate park.

Firefighters hit the streets

for cancer charity

DONATING: Firefighters from the Lyttelton Volunteer

Fire Brigade spent Saturday in their uniforms as they

collected more than $3000 of donations for Leukemia

& Blood Cancer New Zealand as part of the Sky Tower

Stair Challenge in May. Chief fire officer Mark Buckley

said Saturday’s collection was one of several they are

doing over the next two months. He said they aim to

have raised $15,000 for the event. ​


Charlie Hatley,

7, enjoyed the

old Sumner

skate ramp one

last time at its

farewell last


“The only way to get a good

outcome is to get the community’s

voice heard.”

She said the Green and Skate

group know 26 Nayland St is the

best choice for a skate park and

understands city council have

to go through long processes to

purchase the land from LINZ.

However, she said there also

needs to be continued and open

consultation from city council

to the community so it can try

to gain from 20 through to 26

Nayland St for a village green and

skate area.

Mrs Mossman said it has been

a frustrating and long process but

if city council “talks the talk”, the

future for the skate park is promising.

She said the children are

really missing their skate ramp

and have been travelling out of

Sumner and into the city to fill

their skating craving.

Community Board member

Sara Templeton said there has

been demand for a skate park in

the Bays area for many years.

In Brief


Firefighters attended a small

bonfire on Sumner Beach

on Saturday night. Sumner

Volunteer Fire Brigade deputy

chief fire officer Darren

Wright said they were called

out to the bonfire, which

could have easily spread.

He said conditions are still

extremely dry and people

need to take care.


The Banks Peninsula

Community Board is asking

for advice on whether

a building consent is

required to fix headstones

in city council cemeteries.

Chairwoman Christine

Wilson said the question was

raised by a board member.

She said a lot of headstones

throughout Christchurch

were damaged in the 2011

earthquakes, including

some in Lyttelton. She

said although the repair of

headstones is usually left up

to the families, some may not

be around to care for them

anymore. While repairing

the headstones is not an

immediate issue, the board

wants to have the information

ready so it is prepared for

when something is done

about them, she said.

Our People

Not out after 16 years playing

Club captain Dan Vann has played for Sumner Cricket for 16 years. His love

for cricket has taken him all over the world and helped define his career as

a junior representative coach and Chisnallwood’s PE teacher. Noah Graham

spoke to him about his time in the game

A CAPTAIN’S KNOCK: Chisnallwood Intermediate School PE

teacher, Sumner Cricket Club captain and coach Dan Vann

spends most of his days talking and teaching cricket.


What drew you into cricket?

It’s been in my family, my

grandfather used to be the

president of Otago cricket

and he was also an umpire,

and then my dad played from

there. Obviously, my brother

and I started playing and just

continued on through. I enjoy

it, it’s my passion and my job

as well. In my holidays and

after school I do a bit of cricket

coaching. It’s working on a lot of

mental training.

How does coaching compare

to playing?

I enjoy it. I still like playing.

I’ve always helped people get

better at things. Coaching just

came as part of that. I actually

got into teaching through

coaching. I did a bit of cricket

coaching when I was younger

and people just said I’d make a

good primary school teacher.

That’s what made me go to

Teacher’s College and I followed

it from there.

When did you start


I started in early primary

school and then backyard

cricket at home with my younger

brother. We used to play against

each other a lot. We used to live

on a farm so we had a few mates

from the area come along and

play a bit of backyard cricket.

Then we moved into the city

when I was a bit older. I actually

played at Sumner because I went

to Linwood College and it’s not

a very good cricket school. My

friend’s dad was the president –

Ray Steel – so I started playing at

the Sumner Cricket Club when I

was 15 or 16. I’ve played here for

about 16 years.

What was it like playing for

Sumner when you started?

When I first started I did okay.

It was good coming to Sumner

because the club had a very

strong senior team. I used to

play with the second team but I

would train with the first team.

So we had a lot of ex-Canterbury

players who would help coach

us. I worked my way up into

the senior team when I was 18

and then there were about two

years when I was known as

the ‘specialist’ fielder because

that’s all I did. Then a lot of the

older guys retired so I became

more of a senior player and then

eventually I was captain for a

couple of years and now I’m the

coach and the club captain. I

always ran the coaching sessions

and have helped the juniors and

stuff like that.

What’s the best part of

playing cricket?

It’s probably the camaraderie

of playing with your mates.

Cricket’s a game where you

spend half the time sitting and

not playing. If you don’t enjoy

the guys you’re hanging out with

then you’re not going to enjoy the

cricket. We’re lucky we’ve always

had a good team.

What is the memory that

sticks out to you the most?

Since I’ve been at the club

we’ve won about six or seven

titles. When we won them about

10 years ago I was an up-andcomer

and didn’t contribute as

much in terms of the game. In

more recent years it’s been a bit

more rewarding because of the

responsibility myself and the

other senior players have to

His effort has left Sumner in a

dominant position going into the

second day on Saturday.

New Brighton finished day one

on 88/4 in their second innings, still

55 runs behind Sumner who will be

eyeing up a rare innings victory.

The conditions certainly didn’t

hamper the Sumner batting effort.

Put into bat they managed a first innings

total of 294/8 before the match

became the Wellington show.

The groundsman come strike

bowler single handily ripped

through New Brighton’s top order.

Wicketkeeper batsman Tom

McDonald was the only player to

put up a fight launching 95 from

53 balls before he was inevitably

dismissed by Wellington as New

Brighton fell for 151 all out in the

23rd over.

Sumner asked New Brighton to

follow-on and Wellington’s form

continued as he picked up three

for 28 to end the day with 10-58.

“It was a good feeling to get

there. I’ve had a few five wicket

bags but finally have the 10-wicket

match after 20 years of trying,”

said Wellington.

“I did some pretty good celebratory

moves . . . I even pulled out a

special celebration, the chainsaw.”

He credits his success to “old age

and experience.”

Through four games in the twoday

competition Wellington had

taken 17 wickets at an average of

16.23 and strike rate of 28.24.

Sumner Club captain Dan

Vann said Wellington had done

exceptionally well as the pitch was

a batsman’s wicket.

cricket for Sumner

What’s the highest you have

ever scored?

Last year I got 141. The last

couple of years I have been

batting at seven because our

team has got a good batting

order. Between me and a couple

of other guys we would come in

and have a tee-off at the end. In

this particular game we were five

wickets down for eight runs and

one of the young guys I coached

got 87 and I got 141. He got out

just before I did. So we probably

put on 230-run partnership and

we ended up winning by an


Do you have any


A lot of cricketers are

superstitious but I’m not really

that crazy. I always do the things

that we always do. I walk through

the gate when you go to bat. I

always mark my centre wicket

after I hit the boundary. But

that’s more of a routine to keep

me focused.

Who is the team to beat?

At the moment Heathcote is

our biggest rival. They’re the top

club at the moment. They’re just

one of the better teams to play.

If you beat them you have had a

good day.

How long have you been a

teacher for and what schools

have you worked at?

I’ve been a teacher at

Chisnallwood for nine years. I

took a sabbatical in 2012 and was

a player and coach in England. I

went to Hertfordshire and played

for a club called Broxbourne. I

just did relief teaching and PE

teaching over there. It was quite

casual work and it allowed me

How did teaching differ in


Teaching PE in England I

found the kids were far less into

other sports. They loved football

but if it wasn’t football they

weren’t too keen. I think the

schools were very strict on the

way you did things. You didn’t

have freedom as a relief teacher.

Did not have the Kiwi “she’ll be

right mate” attitude.

So other than cricket, what

else do you like to do?

Just any outdoors sports stuff

really. I do a bit of snowboarding,

golf, I used to play rugby for

Sumner as well. I play a bit of

indoor cricket in the winter.

Mountain biking. Just anything

outdoors, really. I’m pretty busy

with teaching, coaching and still

trying to play cricket as well. It’s

pretty busy.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

Just my wife Michelle, and

our dog, Duke. Duke is a bit of a

mixture. He’s a bit too intelligent

for his own good. He’s quite

a good escape artist but he’s

calmed down in the past few

years. He’s had a few surgeries.

He’s not old, just slowing down a

little bit. He is quite well behaved

when we’re home. He likes to be

around people and doesn’t like to

be left alone so he’ll take himself

for a walk. My brother and his

wife and two kids. He’s two years

younger than me. We’re a pretty

small family.


He said they were scheduled to play

at Rawhiti but there were problems

with the New Brighton pitch and

the game was moved to their home

ground. Sumner are currently fourth

in the two-day competition with one

round remaining following Saturday’s

final day in the penultimate round.

The team took out the one-day competition

earlier in the summer and

although they are out of the race for

the two-day competition they can still

win the overall points tally, which

takes results from both formats.

Tree under threat

Mr Jones has lived at his

family home in Mt Pleasant onand-off

for the past 65 years and

as an admiring neighbour of the

gum tree, he is certain the community

would not be the same

without it.

The 90-year-old manna gum

has been cut piece-by-piece over

the past few weeks after the

owner of the property decided

it was too much to manage, he


In response, Mr Jones was one

of more than 50 Mt Pleasant

residents who signed a petition

to show their support for the

tree in an attempt to change the

owner’s mind.

He said the tree deserved to

be on the hill as it is a part of

the community’s history and

although he understood the

owner’s reasoning, it is a shame

the owner could not come to

another solution.

“They might not know it but

they will become known as the

family who chopped down a

90-year-old tree.

“Everyone is absolutely disappointed.”


Pleasant resident Richard

Jones says it is disappointing

a 90-year-old tree is being

cut down.


Seamount Tce resident Eddie

Du Plessis has spent the last

three weeks rallying support for

the tree in an attempt to change

the owner’s mind.

Mr Du Plessis said he, and

five other Mt Pleasant residents,

showed the owner the petition.

The man listened to their opinions

but was not going to budge

on his decision.

“We wasted our time talking

to the owner.”

Mr Du Plessis said the owner

did not want to deal with the

effort required to keep the gum

tree maintained.

A spokesperson for the city

council said the tree used to be

on the Notable and Heritage

Trees list but was omitted from

the significant trees list in December

2015 when city council,

submitters and the property’s

owner agreed the tree did not

warrant protection.

“Accordingly, the owner is

free to manage the tree as they

wish,” the spokesperson said.

Mt Pleasant Memorial Community

Centre and Residents

Association chairman Derek

McCullough said it was sad for

the community that the tree

would be coming down but he

could see both sides of the issue.

He said he realised the tree

was an important part of the

community but there was also

parts of the tree that were dangerous.

Comments from the petition

to stop the tree being felled

It’s shape, magnificent stature

and many moods give us something

to marvel at on an hourly

basis as the weather and light

change. It has been a constant

companion from which we have

taken inspiration and strength. It

represents the beauty and uplifting

power of nature. It is indeed

a significant and exceptional tree

and it does not need to appear on

any list to provide an immense

value to many people way beyond

the boundaries of its substantial

leaf mass.

Simply look at it with fresh eyes

and try to catch a glimpse of what

we see and feel.

This tree is beautiful. Please

keep it. Ninety years old can

never be replaced in such glory.

The stunningly beautiful

manna gum tree would have

been planted around about the

same time as our house was built

and is part of that heritage. We

have a very large garden full of

natives and exotic planting and

the native birds enjoy both. You

need exotic trees to create that

diversity and artistry which helps

us all work though the trials that

life throws at us. We hope you

will reconsider this issue and we

as a community will be there to

support you in its maintenance.

I would like to express the

extreme sense of loss I would

personally feel if this tree was

removed. I have observed it in

all it’s many moods, bathed

in golden sunlight. Waving its

branches in wild weather, it is

magnificent at all times. It is a

haven for many birds, bees and

butterflies. A tree of such stature

cannot possibly be replaced. If its

beauty and character were taken

away, I would be profoundly saddened.

We in the neighbourhood all

get different views of this majestic

tree. Each day it is one of our

first sights as we let the daylight

into the kitchen. The proposal to

bring this magnificent, noble tree

down is much worse than disappointing.

New Zealand’s newest and oldest city


Construction starts on a new central city waterfront

this month – Te Papa Ōtākaro/Avon River Precinct

– The Promenade.

It will extend from the Antigua Boatsheds near

Christchurch Hospital to the Margaret Mahy Family

Park. Work starts on the intersection Oxford Terrace

and Lichfield Street this month. The Promenade will

be finished in mid to late 2018.

Artist impression showing what The Promenade

will look like along Oxford Terrace, above the

Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial.

The Promenade will vary along its 2.8 kilometres,

but all areas will include:

1. An accessible walking route adjacent to

property boundaries.

2. Seating near the edge of the river.

3. A paved pathway for pedestrians near the

river edge.

4. A shared space promenade for pedestrians,

cyclists and vehicles (10kph speed limit).

5. A flexible occupation zone that can be

brought to life for outdoor eating and other

recreational uses.

6. Tree-lined rain gardens, other landscaping

and seating.

Completed section near The Terraces.








Work to restore Victoria Square has started and

finishes in the first quarter of 2018.

Many features in the square are either earthquake

damaged or close to the end of their life. This project

will restore the square and make it safer and more

accessible for people.

Completed section near the Worcester Street Bridge.

Paving, art, gardens, lighting, and seating will

make the area accessible to people of all ages and

abilities. Service vehicles and customers will still

be able to access businesses, but the speed limit

will be lowered.

The much loved Bowker Fountain will be repaired.

The statues of Captain Cook and Queen Victoria will

remain, as will the horse watering ramp and floral

clock. There will be some new features such as art

works and a new punt stop at the river’s edge.

There will be no access through Victoria Square

while work is underway, but access along a pathway

between Armagh Street and Durham/Kilmore

Streets (through The Commons) will be available

for most of this time.

Artist impression of what the new ‘Tauranga Waka’

punt stop will look like.

The development of the restoration plan was

overseen by a Community Reference Group

following a public feedback process carried out in

collaboration with project partners: Christchurch

City Council, Matapopore Charitable Trust on behalf

of the Te Tūnanga o Ngāi Tūāhuriri, and the former

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority.

McCaw takes on City2Surf fun run

• By Bridget Rutherford

GEMMA MCCAW has taken

on the Coast to Coast run,

endurance races and played

more than 200 internationals for

the Black Sticks.

And, of course, after her much

publicised recent wedding, she

and husband, rugby great Richie

McCaw, kick-started their Central

Otago honeymoon with a

20km run.

But on March 19, she will be

running for fun and charity in

The Star City2Surf with Mike

Pero Real Estate.

The former Black Sticks star

and about 25 Aviva staff will run

and walk the 6km and 14km

events to raise awareness and

money for the charity.

City2Surf has chosen Aviva

as its benefiting charity for this

year’s event. Aviva provides family

violence support.

Gemma said Aviva, formerly

known as Christchurch Women’s

Refuge, was deserving,and

the City2Surf was a great way to


“To have those conversations

about where people can go for

help is important for any community.”

She would not be racing to win

in the 14km event because, for

her, it was more about enjoying

it. Although, she said a minor

knee injury sustained after taking

part in the Coast to Coast

run may “slow her down a little


Gemma said it will be her first

time running in the iconic event

and she welcomed others to join


“You won’t regret it. That sense

of achievement afterwards and

that community feel is the perfect

opportunity and a great way

to spend a Sunday.”

Aviva marketing and funding

manager Julie McCloy said the

City2Surf was part of a 12-week

wellness challenge staff were

doing to promote physical wellbeing.

“For us working in family and

sexual violence, we want to help

people achieve well-being.”

City2Surf event manager

Vanessa Fleming said they were

expecting more than 12,000

people to take part this year.

“It’s amazing for Aviva to have

someone like Gemma. She’s

just an ordinary Kiwi girl supporting

the charity and raising

awareness for Aviva, which helps

families live free of violence.”

She said the 43rd event was all

about giving it a go, whether it

be walking, jogging or running.

Nina Cook was born in Whakatane in 1967. She was educated in Wanganui and

then at Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art and Design where she received

a Bachelor of Design. In 2007 Nina established the studio from which she

currently works. Nina’s latest exhibition named ‘Opening’ takes place at Little

River Gallery from March 11th until April 5th.

Ian Clothier writes about Nina Cook’s new works from the exhibition


“…Sumptuously indulgent, some of the paintings have sensual cavities

accompanied by extravagant displays of form and colour that come close to

gorging the eyes. Words such as colour, spectrum and visual feast apply equally

to the paintings as they do to the tail of peacocks. Such

as the collection of thoughts about feathers, colour

and visual luxury that assemble on reflection of Nina

Cook’s Opening works.”

Nina writes about her own work.

“The narrative/impetus for this series of works is deeply personal. Broadly, it is

about a cycle of profound hurt to intense release. Opening: to force an opening

(to breach) through to Opening: to release and truly open up.

The process is integral and is one of concentrated, open-minded patience,

requiring me to stay alert to paint (viscosity, brush loading, etc) and

compositional characteristics in much the same way

as fully abstract works demand. These cannot

be rushed, nor the movements/marks allowed

to become repetitively mechanical. To do so

would be to undermine the intention of the work.

The works initially appear highly decorative and

orderly – feathers mean birds. But on closer inspection, these are not any birds

you’d recognise. Their physiology is different (wrong? altered?). The colours

and intensity are emotive, the mark-making intense. These irregularities draw

you in, encourage observation and contemplation. But ultimately you are

released to once again to simply enjoy the decorative qualities of these jewels.

That they are designed to be hung at any angle, allows the image to be

changed/refreshed at will. This allows the viewer input into the relationship

each work has with its surroundings. The round paintings are very effective in

groupings, allowing differences between the works to intensify each other.”

Your Local Views

If in doubt, don’t go out!

• By Gary Manch, navigational

safety officer, Lyttelton

WITH AUTUMN now with

us a lot of you will be making

the most of the good weather.

And so you should! However,

as you will all know,

here in New Zealand we can

experience four seasons in one

day. It’s really important that

you check the weather forecast

before you enjoy your day at

sea, on the river or at the lake.

Knowledge of what is going

to happen the day you head

out on the water is crucial to

your safety and that of your


I like to use the MetService

Marine forecast and also check

one of the other local weather

services to ensure I’m on the

right track in terms of my planning

for my day on the water.

I have weather apps on my

phone which are really simple

to use; they keep me up to date

to the very minute before I

decide to launch my boat.

Some good apps include

The Weather Channel,

MetService Marine weather

and MetService.

It’s not unusual for the

Harbourmaster’s Office to get

reports about boats getting

Pirate’s Corner

caught out in poor conditions

and sometimes requiring assistance

from Coastguard. A

lot of these boating incidences

could have been avoided if

the skipper had checked the

weather forecast before heading


My philosophy on boating

safety is simple – if in doubt,

don’t go out! I know it sounds

a bit corny, but it’s a simple

way to decide whether heading

out on the water is a good idea

or not.

I’m very impressed with

Maritime New Zealand’s

catchphrase – “nobody’s

faster than disaster”. What this

means is plan for the worst.

Complacency or a simple lack

of care could have disastrous

consequences for you and your


Wearing lifejackets, having

two forms of communication

and knowing the rules are all

basic things to tick off before

you head out on the water. The

Blues (for those of you old

enough to know who he is)

out there”.

the Ministry of Education’s

decision to use the Redcliffs

Park site in spite of vocal


You said:

Pamela Neil – Just leave it

where it is – six years!

Dani Cooper – Right in front

of a Cliffside, which crumbled

badly in the quakes? Don’t think

I’d send my kids there thanks.

Cathryn Lucy – The site is

entirely safe and some kids live

closer to it. The Government is

pulling rubbish out from nowhere

that kids will be psychologically

traumatised from the memories,

but that’s all they have to go on and

none of those children will be at

the school when it reopens anyway,

they will all have passed through

to high school. But even though

the site is absolutely fine, the

school has to settle for something

and compromise to even have a

school, as to argue against the park

or Barnett Park, they have to rule it

out. And if the Government rules

out the current site too, which they

want to do so they can build on it

themselves, then the school has no

option and can’t open in Redcliffs.

Sometimes you have to cut your

losses, even when you know those

you are fighting are entirely wrong.

Ideal world the school would

return to the original site which

is entirely fine and a wonderful

school site. But a school at the park

is better than no school at all.

Jamie Fowler – Leave it where

it is. If anything, move classrooms

more towards road. Make the back

end the field.

John Gamblin – Just close it

altogether that will stop people


Andrew Johnson – Which

would be quicker – a tsunami or

the cliffs coming down?

Rob Eder – Good decision,

about time.

Given this heritage, I was not

surprised that a number of Bays

residents have approached me

and raised questions about the

final appearance of the numerous

mitigation works in their area.

It needs to be said from the

outset that these residents have always

framed their questions with

the gratitude that they feel for the

important and costly works that

have been completed to protect

vital infrastructure.

Yet, they still question what

the final visual impact of these

works will be. In Peacocks Gallop,

for instance will the “black pool

fences” be the final visual solution

for what was once an avenue of

beautifully crafted stone and iron

memorial lampposts?

Once again, I have to point out,

that these comments have not

been made in a finger-pointing

negative way. They are merely

the natural result of that great

Christchurch tradition of caring

about our community and our

shared spaces.

Since the earthquakes, residents

of the Bays community have given

Maybe there can be an opportunity

for that same force to reshape

In The Life Changing Art of

Tidying Up, Marie Kondo refers

to the concept that what we see

in our constructed environment

must spark joy in us.

Now that the mitigation work

has taken place, maybe it is time to

tidy-up our public spaces, and let

the people of the Bays community

lead the way in designing what

will spark joy in their surroundings.

Plan for skate park









member Sara Templeton

talks about how important

having a permanent skate

park in Sumner is and

how the community can

use their own initiative to

regenerate Christchurch

It’s been a busy weekend in

Christchurch with events on all

over the city.

LYFE, Nostalgia, Holi, Japan

Day and Children’s Day have

all been on and complement the

ongoing smaller activities that

happen in our neighbourhoods

every week. The Mt Pleasant,

Sumner, Lyttelton and Opawa

markets are great places for us

to shop and connect as communities

and the many playgrounds

are full of children and

their parents catching up.

We’re missing something

though – ongoing activities

for our youth. There has been

demand for a skate park in the

Bays area for many years; it was

identified in a city council network

plan in 2004 and in 2009

and in 2015, it nearly

FUN: The Governors Bay Fete will have a variety of events available for families to take part in.

Fete a chance to spotlight jetty

• By Noah Graham

NEXT WEEK’S Governors

Bay Fete will be called the


Allandale Domain will host

the ninth fete on March 19 and

it will be four hours of familyfriendly

fun, organiser Wendy

Foster said.

She said this year they are

expecting around 1000 people

to turn up to the event which

will have a variety of activities

from “walking the Jetty” – an

opportunity to raise awareness of

the Save the Jetty campaign – to

dunking Governors Bay firefighters

in water.

This year’s event will be “just a

lot of fun” and will celebrate the

coastal community and provide

local community groups a

chance to fundraise, she said.

She said there will be something

for everyone with both

young and old teaming up for

a special competition – the top

team challenge.

Mrs Foster said she had coined

it the “laughalympics” because

there are a variety of different

activities on offer and everyone

has fun.

“We’re planning for a large

community involvement this

year as community members

really came together to support

each other during the fire and

seem to be experiencing a regenerated

community spirit.”

Through the event the community

can expect to hear the

Sumner Silver Band and other

local musicians, she said.

LEARNING SKILLS: Mt Pleasant School year 3 to 8 pupils took

part in a round-robin football competition last week when the

school was visited by Ferrymead Bays Football Club captain

Ren Cameron and some Canterbury United Dragons players.

Year 5 and 6 teacher Jeremy Griffiths said everyone had fun,

including the teachers. “It was a great chance for the students

to meet some of Canterbury’s up-and-coming footballers and

showcase their talents at the same time,” he said.

Small Ship Cruising.

Where will 2017 and 2018 take you?

Cruising and in particular ‘Small ship cruising’ is something we are very passionate about at House

of Travel Ferrymead. Unpacking once and exploring diverse environments from the comfort of your

stateroom, small ships mean getting up close and personal with a destination, often getting into

more intimate locations, more time ashore, smaller groups of travellers and often very luxurious

vessels with an expedition aspect and feel. Securing a cabin on a cruise well in advance can form

the building block of your future adventure. Believe it or not cruising sells from the ‘top down’ –

that is the best cabins always go first, and bookings are already now open for 2018. We are excited

to present to you our picks for some exciting adventures for 2017 and 2018 – but rest assured small

ships mean less cabins so hurry and get in now to avoid disappointment and start planning your

travels with us now! Call us today on 03 376 4022.

Father-son duo win XRACE event

• By Poppy Wortman

A REDCLIFFS father and son

duo took out the line honours at

Sunday’s NZHL XRACE, held

under blazing blue skies at New

Brighton Beach.

At a speedy time of 41m 20s,

Greg Jansen and eight-year-old

son, Luke, tackled 10 challenges,

including creating a cardboard

house, building an origami bird

and performing dance steps.

Jansen had raced the previous

two years with Luke’s older sister

Hannah, but this year he signed

up with his middle son.

“I love the balance of the competition

and the companionship

of being in an event with my

children. There is just nothing

like this,” Jansen said.

“I loved every second of being

able to race with my son. I

couldn’t have been prouder.

“It’s a bit of a grudge match

now though; my six-year-old son

is booking me in for next year

and is aiming for a legacy.”

The Christchurch stop over

was the sixth event in the national

series of XRACE events. An

well. This year, teams were told

in advance that one challenge

Membership drive for Lyttelton netball

MORE SUCCESS: Football practice is well under way at

Ferrymead as the club prepares for the upcoming season.

The men’s senior and reserve teams have been training

for a few weeks now and are warming up for the Mainland

Premier League, which starts on March 19. Ferrymead’s

women’s and 45-plus men’s teams (pictured) took out gold

at the South Island Masters’ Tournament in Timaru last year

and the club is looking for more success this year. Club

captain Ren Cameron said the players were training well

and are looking forward to the season. He said there will be

a lot of exciting football this season for the club, particularly

with a team being sent to a three-day under-17 youth

football tournament in Auckland later this month.


Club is hoping to increase its

membership pool this season.

Lyttelton committee chairwoman

Flo McGregor said training

will begin towards the end

in April, but it is not too late for

people to register.

Mishmash of sights in Milan

• By Mike Yardley

MILAN CAN be a tough nut to

crack and first impressions aren’t

always flattering.

Extensively bombed during

World War 2, the central city

skyline resembles an architectural

lasagne, a mishmash of the

venerable and the hastily built


But give this Italian powerhouse

of finance and fashion a

chance to reveal her finery and

you’ll be amply rewarded.

The banner attractions are

headlined by the Duomo,

Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last

Supper, and what is arguably the

most elegant shopping centre

in Europe, Galleria Vittorio

Emanuele II.

Fancy a new way to commune

with this glass domed goliath?

Head up to the roofline of the

Galleria, which has only been

open to the public since May.

Costing €12, Highline Galleria

serves up giddy perspectives

of the building, across to the

Duomo, and on a clear day,

expansive views of the Alps.

The far end archway leading out

of the galleria adjoins the pretty

Piazza della Scala, adorned with

a statue of Leonardo Da Vinci

overlooking Teatro La Scala.

First built in 1778, this legendary

opera house was all but destroyed

during World War 2, but was

rapidly rebuilt and reopened in

1946. La Scala’s façade is rather

austere, but like much of Milan,

the real beauty lies within.

Its majestic six-tiered and

chandeliered interior, bursting

with gilded arches and scarlet-silk

furnishings are sublime. Trying

to score tickets to an opera is not

easy, nor cheap, so if you want to

grab a glimpse of the auditorium’s

lavish interior, just head next

door to Scala Museum where for

€6 you get to gaze down inside

this stupendous theatre.

One of Milan’s favourite sons,

Guiseppe Verdi, premiered 10 of

his 26 operas at La Scala and on

nearby Via Manzoni, take note

MAJESTIC: Clockwise from left, the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio

Emanuele II.

FOOD: Queues to sample Luini’s tasty morsels.

of the imposing Grand Hotel, an

old-school Milanese establishment,

where many glittery guests,

including Rudolf Nureyev and

Margot Fontein didn’t just stay

a few nights, but moved in. The

most famous resident was Verdi

himself, who shifted in 1872

and died in Room 105, in 1901.

Horses outside the hotel had their

hooves muffled, and the street

was draped in carpet to cushion

the sound of the carriages, so as

not to disturb the dying composer

in his last days. The hotel

is actually a time-capsule, to the

point that you can book the Verdi

Suite, the very room where he

died, which has been preserved as

a memorial.

An assortment of his property

remains including the desk

where he composed the music for

Othello, and rather morbidly, the

bed in which he died.

While soaking up the fashion


houses in the Golden Quad, enjoy

coffee and cake at Caffe Cova.

Situated on my favourite street,

via Montenapoleone, where

the pavement looks more like a

catwalk due to the fine threads

flaunted by the passers-by, the

café has been in business since

1817 and was a second home to

all the A-list composers. Order

up an espresso and a slice of Cova

Panettone, Verdi’s personal favourite

– but stay standing at the bar.

Sit down and you’ll pay 10 times


Luini makes amazing panzerotti

– pillowy fried dough parcels

stuffed with tomato and mozzarella.

The Milanese have swooned

over Luini’s tasty morsels since

it first opened in 1888, and now

there’s always a line in front of

this hole-in-the wall shop. Panzerotti

is street food at its best;

cheap, cheerful, quick and tasty.

Alongside the original tomato

and mozzarella, the ricotta and

spinach combo hits the spot too

as does the mouth-watering spicy


If you’re shopping up a storm in

the Golden Quad, or just browsing,

one store that embodies the

Milanese obsession with bespoke

fashion is Maglia Francesco, Milan’s

famous umbrella company.

In a city where it rains more regularly

than Auckland, the trending

must-have object of Milanese

desire is a tailored umbrella.

You choose the wood, the metal,

the insets, the fabrics – even the

the bespoke brolly browsers in

action at Maglia Francesco, on via


One of Milan’s most adored

treasures is also one of the most

elusive: Da Vinci’s depiction of

The Last Supper. Miraculously

surviving the allied bombings,

the revered wall mural graces

the refectory of the Dominican

monastery at Santa Maria delle

Grazie. Da Vinci’s evocative work

was applied directly onto dry

wall, which is the reason for its

fragility, and the limited viewing

time. The painstaking restoration

carried out in recent years is

cause for celebration, albeit in a

hushed reverential kind of way.


Steer clear of the

numerous rip-off ticket

touts, trawling the

streets (and the internet)

offering entrance tickets

at exorbitant prices to

see The Last Supper.

You shouldn’t have to

pay any more than €12.

Checketts was badly burned but

safely in a field, while his spitfire

ploughed into the ground.

He was safely hidden with a

With help from the French Resistance,

Checketts evaded capture

safely made it back to England.

He passed away in Christchurch

in 2006 after serving as a

The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir

by Jennifer Ryan

The village of Chilbury in Kent is about to ring in some

changes.This is a delightful novel of wartime gumption

and village spirit that will make your heart sing out. Kent,

1940.In the idyllic village of Chilbury change is afoot.

Hearts are breaking as sons and husbands leave to fight,

and when the Vicar decides to close the choir until the

men return, all seems lost.But coming together in song is

just what the women of Chilbury need in these dark hours,

and they are ready to sing. With a little fighting spirit and the

arrival of a new musical resident, the charismatic Miss Primrose

Trent, the choir is reborn.Some see the choir as a chance to forget their

troubles, others the chance to shine. Though for one villager, the choir is the

perfect cover to destroy Chilbury’s new-found harmony.Uplifting and profoundly

moving, THE CHILBURY LADIES’ CHOIR explores how a village can endure the

onslaught of war, how monumental history affects small lives and how survival

is as much about friendship as it is about courage.

Radio Boy

by Christian O’Connell





From leading breakfast radio star Christian O’Connell comes a brilliant and

laugh-out-loud story of an ordinary boy with an extraordinary secret radio show.

(Broadcast from his shed.) Meet Spike, aka Radio Boy: a new Adrian Mole on

the radio for the internet generation.Spike’s your average awkward 11 year old,

funny and cheeky and with a mum to reckon with. When he becomes the first

presenter ever to be sacked from hospital radio, he decides to carry on from a

makeshift studio in the garden shed, with the help of his best friends Artie and

Holly, disguising his voice and going by the moniker Radio Boy.Week by week,

word gets around and soon Spike is a star… if only people knew it was actually

him. When Spike begins to believe his own hype, and goes too far with his

mocking of the school headmaster, a hunt is launched for the mysterious Radio

Boy.Can Spike remain anonymous? Will he get to marry the girl of his dreams,

Katherine Hamilton? Will he become famous and popular? The answer to most of

these questions is no…

After two years

of touring Australia, the timeless

children’s story will finally come

to the city in July.

Star Media has partnered the

Isaac Theatre Royal to bring the

successful show to Christchurch


“It has been a long time coming.

I have been planning this

since its inception in 2015. Glad

we can finally get it over there,”

Sieders said.

The show is to be presented by

JWR Productions Australia and

Michael Sieders Presents.

Seventy-five hand-made

puppets controlled by just four

cast members will take Eric

Carle’s classic tale from the page

to the Isaac Theatre Royal’s


But to stay true to what is only

a short 22-page book, audiences

will get to see another three of

MAGICAL SHOW: The giant butterfly is one of 75 hand-made

puppets to feature in The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show.

Carle’s children’s book adapted,

bulking the show out to nearly

an hour.

The show is to begin with The

Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse,

Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely

Firefly before finishing with The

Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The stage is to be transformed

into a giant library with a 3.5m

high book prop enabling the cast

to create the different setting for

each story.

A team of about five puppetmakers

from Puppet Kitchen

Productions in New York city

spent four months full-time

creating the puppets before they

were shipped off to Sydney.

“We have puppets that range

in size from the little tiny lightup

firefly which is probably

about the size of someone’s

hand, ranging right up to the

butterfly which has a wing span

of nearly 4m,” Sieders said.

He said the giant butterfly

puppet will literally fly off a page

and head straight towards the


“Even though you only get to

see those puppets for sometimes

a very brief moment on stage,

you can tell so much work has

gone into them and the detail is

just breath-taking”.

Sieders said this is his first

work he has done for children

and it has been the most

satisfying experience he has had

as a producer.

This wonderful large home will impress - sunny spacious and in a perfect position, the "Golden Triangle" of Sumner.

Only a short stroll to the beach, paddling pool, park and café - what could be better? Local schools and tennis club

within walking distance and the convenience of being on a bus route for city schools will appeal. Originally built in the

1930s, the extensive renovation in 1998 added a second story. Now four large double bedrooms, two bathrooms,

brilliant storage and separate living areas both upstairs and down, this home allows freedom for everyone to enjoy their

own space. Bathed in all day sun with open plan kitchen, the generous dining area opens to an expansive deck leading

to well established gardens and lawns. Private, fenced and safe with internal access double garaging plus workshop.

A fantastic opportunity in this prestigious area, hill views and lifestyle to enjoy!
